It has done this to me once of twice. You will need to go and pull down the menu from the top of the screen. The symbol with the two arrows going in opposite directions needs to be highlighted. if it is not click on it. Sometimes it will get shutoff when connected to wifi.

Same phone, Different towers. Logic - GSM (att or tmobile). Dynamic - CDMA (Verizon).

I believe the main difference is that the Dynamic runs on CDMA networks (Verizon, Sprint) and the Logic on GSM (T-Mobile, AT&T).

It may not matter at all to you, but you could Google CDMA vs GSM to see the difference.

Question

Will WiFi Work w/o Phone Service?

My daughter's iPod Touch died and all the apps she uses are avail on Google Play. Can I buy this phone and only uses it with WiFi like an iPod (ie, w/o actually using any phone service)?

Yes, I have done this with several phones and it is easy. BBBBUUUUTTTT
This phone has an extremely small internal memory around 500 mb and is not able to play the better games. As a music player it will work great with an SD card. I would consider a phone with at least 1 GB of internal memory. There are cheaper phones similar to this one if you don't care about provider or which towers they use. The LG Optimus Logic is the same as this phone. Also try Net10 or Virgin Mobile.

The L38C LG Straight Talk that I have will automatically enter Google Play for the apps that you want to download called "Play Store" with a white bag picture. It will pick up WiFi signals and tell you but I ignore them because the cell already has internet on it. Otherwise once you leave that spot, you will have to do some steps to get signals for the regular built in program.

In 2008, Verizon worked a lot better than AT&T and Sprint/Nextel in my location but it may have changed for those other companies as of today in 4/2013. I have had the LG-L38C Android version 2.3.6 for almost a month now. The reception is great as when I put in my location under Straight Talks Website. On the Website enter your zip and the coverage area will show which types of cell phones work better in your area. I found LG had better signal than other cell types. It may hit some spots once in a blue moon but its better than the other cell coverage areas which would be similar to Verizon. I enjoy this so much because I am able to download apps and search the web for different things. I will write a review next year 2014 on the cell and pray it is in 100% condition as it is today.

It's called pinch. you just touch the screen with 2 fingers and squeeze in or out. It should re-size. Most smart phones should do this, if not all.

I typically double tap the screen to zoom in, but it also has pinch to zoom. I think this is standard for most phones.

32 GB, but don't buy one. It comes with a 4 GB card, and the only thing that can go on it is pictures you take with the built in camera. Absolutely ANYTHING you download whether its apps, music, pics, whatever, goes on the internal memory. And there is NO way to transfer data from internal memory to the SD card. It's a pretty bad flaw in the phone, but it is what it is.

I have a 32GB in mine, not sure if it can handle any more than that.
